LONDON — Donald Trump has been accused of throwing “a temper tantrum” by the person behind a petition calling for the Republican presidential candidate to be banned from Britain.Suzanne Kelly, a writer from Aberdeen who set up the petition, criticized Trump following his threats to pull 700 million pounds ($1 billion) of planned investment in his golf courses in Scotland if he is denied entry into Britain.“The irony of a man who wants to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. throwing a temper tantrum over being similarly banned himself is apparent to everyone except the tycoon himself,” Kelly said in an emailed statement.On Jan. 18, British lawmakers will debate two petitions posted on a government website: One, with more than 570,000 signatures, calling for Trump to be banned from the United Kingdom, and a second, signed by over 41,000 people, arguing that such a ban is “totally illogical.”
